Are you looking to make the move away from disposable e-cigs or maybe just get into Sub Ohm tanks and mods? Then the Smok Stick V8 Kit, our customer’s top pick for the Best Mod for Beginners, might be the option for you!

The Smok Stick V8 Kit is a device that focuses on quality, portability, ease of use, and overall performance; all factors that make the SMOK Stick V8 a clear-cut winner for beginner vapers. This device has a sleek and simple design that makes you want to make it your own and show it off.  With its internal rechargeable battery, it's the ideal on-the-go vape kit because you won't have to worry about extra batteries or toting around an external charger.

This beginner mod also includes the TFV8 Big Baby Beast Sub-Ohm Tank, so you’re still going to be putting out enough clouds to compete with larger mods! On top of the impressive cloud production, you’ll find the flavor it produces is also incredible. Couple that with a simple user interface in the form of a single fire button, and you won’t have to worry about messing with wattage, ohms, amps, or anything like that.

The SMOK Stick V8 is a new vaper’s dream device which will help you get a foot in the door to the world of vaping!


Best Variable Wattage Mod - VooPoo Drag 157W Mod

Best Variable Wattage Mod

With so many choices on the market, the question of “What’s the Best Variable Wattage Mod out there?” can get to be a real tough one to answer. While most mods have that certain niche they fall into, the Voopoo Drag 157W mod -- our customer's top pick for Best Variable Wattage Mod -- has the all-around capabilities that make it more than worthy of the top spot.

The Drag is one of VooPoo’s best and most innovative mods thanks to the 32-bit GENE chip. You get a variety of power options such as an advanced TCR mode, more in-depth variable wattage, and a PC app that allows you to create custom wattage per second curves. You can even add a custom logo to the OLED screen! This dual 18650 battery mod is also lightning quick with an instant fire speed of 0.025 seconds so you won’t need any warm-up with the hits!

The VooPoo Drag is built to take a real beating with a full metal construction, but it'll also look great doing it thanks to its beautiful design. The Drag comes in three different metal body colors (silver, black, or gold) and a variety of side plate options including some one-of-a-kind colored resin plates. Basically, this mod can be personalized to your tastes. 

There may be mods out there that boast a higher wattage or a more artistic style, but none of them offer a complete package that any vaper would love to have like the VooPoo Drag.


Most Reliable Mod - Aleader Funky 160W Mod

Most Reliable ModWe get it, you’re not looking for a mod that is going to take a masters in electrical engineering and a personal connection to Elon Musk to figure out how to work. Lucky for you, we've got our personal go-to device, the Funky 160w by Aleader. 

The Funky was built with the intention of making a mod that was able to compete with expensive high-end mods without being expensive. We believe Aleader did that perfectly and apparently, so did our customers who voted it as the Most Reliable Mod in our poll.

For starters, this dual 18650 style mod supports both variable wattage and temperature control. Add in Aleader's new chipset and a water-resistant OLED screen and you've got a device that creates a simplified and user-friendly experience while still having a quick response time and several cutoff connections.

What makes the Funky 160 really shine though, is the removable resin battery panels. Typically, if you wanted to get a device with resin side plates, you were stuck with whatever design the mod came with. With the Funky, you can spruce up your mod and give it new looks thanks to affordable interchangeable resin plates! 

All things considered, we couldn’t agree more with our customers. The Funky 160 is a device that we would turn as our reliable daily mod that's always there for you when you need it!


Most Innovative Mod- GeekVape GBOX 200W Squonk Kit

Most Innovative ModWhen we think of "most innovative" and a "real game changer", a high wattage regulated squonk kit with Geekvape’s AS chipset definitely comes to mind. Our customers agreed, picking the GeekVape GBOX 200W Squonk Kit as the winner of our Most Innovative mod poll. Great minds think alike!

The GBOX 200W Squonk Kit is Geekvape's first foray into the squonking field but they definitely hit it out of the park. Thanks to the AS chipset, the GBOX is capable of working from 5W to 200W and includes a full TCR suite, VPC support, a bypass mode, and a variety of safety features. 

Additionally, you’ll get GeekVape’s Radar BF RDA, which boasts a 24mm deck with a staggered post system that's connected to the 8ml reservoir bottle inside via a pre-installed squonk pin. Perfect for all the squonking you’ll be doing.

This kit gives you total control over your builds and your vape settings, so if you’re looking to step up your game, you should keep GBOX 200W Squonk Kit on your radar!



Most Beautiful Mod - Tesla Punk 220W Mod

Most Beautiful ModJust like the creations of a fine watchmaker, the Tesla Punk 220W is a work of art that has brought a new modern feel to the steampunk aesthetic! With see-through panels on both sides of the device, you’ll be able to see all the gears and cogs on the inside along with customizable RGB LED lights that let you make this mod your own!

This Tesla Punk has several power settings including multiple temperature controls, variable wattage, and TCR modes that gives you more control of the device itself. This mod also rocks the standard dual 18650 set up with a spring loaded 510 connection pin that way you can use all of your favorite atomizers with it! 

The Tesla Punk's interlocking battery plate design is built to create a more secure hold for keeping everything together. Couple that with a bright OLED operating screen and you have a mod that's a sleek and powerful new addition to your collection!
